“Secretary Clinton has demonstrated her skills as Secretary of State, especially but by no means exclusively in helping other Asian countries counter Chinese bullying in the western Pacific…”For Republicans and Democrats alike, everything in national security requires clarity and steadiness, whether managing nuclear weapons or balancing great power rivalries.””
Those are the words of James Clad, the former deputy assistant secretary of Defense under Bush. Clad is just one of the former Republican president’s officials who have dumped the Trump ship and endorsed the Democrat in the race.
Clad talked about the importance of never losing sight of national interest. He said that is a “discipline which Secretary Clinton possesses in full measure.”
“Our adversaries must never hear flippancy or ignorance in America’s voice,” he added.
